The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving whilst under the supervision of a PADI Instructor, no previous diving experience is needed. You'll master some of the basic scuba skills in the pool and then head off on an open water adventure on one of the beautiful Red Sea reefs. This one day experience program can be credited towards the Scuba Diver or Open Water certification.
|Certification||No certification available, just an experience program but can be credited towards PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Course. Maximum depth 12M|
Theory video, quick quiz, confined water training, dive in the Red Sea
Short on time but still want to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be the one for you. This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification that is still recognized worldwide. This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal.
|Certification||PADI Scuba Diver enables you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters under direct supervision of a PADI Professional.|
Day 1: Confined water training, theory, knowledge reviews and a 10 minute tread water test.
The PADI Open water course is a four day course. Throughout the course you will learn the fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this certification by completing five pool dives and five knowledge development sessions and by making four open water dives from the shore or off one of our boats on the beautiful Red Sea reefs. After completion you will be free to dive anywhere in the world along with your buddy!
|Certification||PADI Open Water Diver. Enables you to dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters with a buddy independent of a professional guide.|
Theory, knowledge reviews and 10 minute tread water & 200 metre swim test, confined water sessions
To accommodate those who wish to do part of the course at home and complete the rest of the course here in the beautiful WARM waters of the Red Sea. The PADI Open Water course can be done in two parts. Part 1 with your local PADI Dive Club at home will cover all the academics, pool sessions and examinations, usually undertaken over evenings and weekends within 6 months before your intended vacation; preferable just before as your knowledge will still be fresh in your mind. This leaves only the 4 open water dives that are completed on this referral course in the comfort and splendour of the warmth and clarity of the Red Sea. Which is considered by many to be much more preferable than the cold quarries, lakes and seas we have back home.
